I have been eyeing this cookbook for quite some time and FINALLY purchased it for myself. I really like how it's pink with features for breast cancer awareness. Features of breast cancer awareness extends further than the book being pink (unlike some products out there!) and includes tips on eating healthy as well as some thoughts from celebrity chefs (like Paula Deen and her sons). I actually bought the cookbook because of the combination of healthy eating tips and basic recipes. This book is okay and probably a better gift for someone just starting to cook in their own place. The recipes were not anything special but the book offers such great insight on basics that I am sure it will come in handy. It's kind of nice having all those tips handy in one place without starting up the computer. As far as someone who likes to cook and is okay printing off recipes online, I say pass on this book.
